Cutaneous Flap which is also known as Skin Flap is a type of wound closure. A local skin flap consists of skin taken from an adjacent area and moved to fill the surgical defect often created from the removal of skin lesions such as skin cancer. It is transferred with an intact blood supply and remains connected to its origin.
After the operation of the cutaneous flap (skin flap), doctors should examine the vascular diameter, flow volume, flow velocity, resistance index, pulsatility index, and acceleration time to see the success of the operation.
The Wireless Color Doppler Linear Ultrasound Scanner L2CD is highly suggested to our Dermatologist, Cosmetic, and Plastic surgeons clients. with its Doppler Feature and the high-frequency linear surface probe from 7.5 to 10 MHz) Not only enables one to examine all that, but also helps in visualizing the vessels simultaneously with the fascia, muscle, adipose tissue, and bone to fully understand the running of the flap feeding vessels.
L2CD is a Doppler Ultrasound Scanner that allows the physician to see and evaluate blood flow through arteries and veins in the abdomen, arms, legs, neck, and/or brain (in infants and children) or within various body organs such as the liver or kidneys.
Besides, Doppler Ultrasound provides the practitioner with the flow volume, vascular resistance, and arterial waveform to clarify the hemodynamics of the flap.
Ultrasound is useful also in the early revelation of vascular obstruction as postoperative thrombosis. It can also provide quantitative observation of bloodstream speed of the anastomotic vessels after surgery, and evaluate blood Supply for Cutaneous.
